PlastIQ Training Center in Belgium Commissions ENGEL Machines

February 15 (2012

Injection molding machine manufacturer and automation expert ENGEL, headquartered in Austria, is supporting the training and further education of specialists in the plastics industry in Belgium. Educational institution PlastIQ has taken delivery of two injection molding machines with comprehensive inject 4.0 packages. Both future and experienced injection molding experts are trained.

An ENGEL victory 330/80 tie-bar-less machine was commissioned at PlastIQ's Circular Material Center in Kortrijk. Another e-victory 310/80 tie-bar-less injection molding machine is located at the T2 Master Campus in Genk. Both PlastIQ and ENGEL Benelux offer training courses at the two locations. While the PlastIQ courses primarily focus on the injection molding process, the courses organized by ENGEL deal with the CC300 machine control unit, automating injection molding processes and maintaining ENGEL injection molding machines and robots.

Cooperation with PlastIQ sees ENGEL Benelux further expand its training offerings in the region. ENGEL operates its own training centers at its sales and service office in Oostakker, Belgium, and at its Dutch subsidiary in Houten.

The two training machines supplied to PlastIQ are each equipped with an ENGEL viper linear robot and intelligent assistance systems from ENGEL's inject 4.0 program. PlastIQ is responding here to advancing digitalization in the plastics industry to familiarize training participants with state-of-the-art injection molding technology.
